For many Vale fans, the new era we're entering now is a whole new experience for them. However for lifelong Vale fan, Gordon Leadley, this is something he's experienced plenty of times over the years of supporting the Valiants.
Since he fell in love with the Vale in 1940, Gordon has seen his fair share of high and low moments at Port Vale. He's seen managers and players come and go and even seen a switch in stadiums. He's managed at youth level for the Vale and stepped onto the pitch at Vale Park to play many times.
We were delighted to invite Gordon into Vale Park last week for a chat about his experiences as a Vale fan over the years and what he's looking forward to the most under new ownership now!
